A Falcon's Eye View Apr 21, 2003
This little book by Dans and Harrell is a charming introduction to the city of Baltimore, as seen through the eyse of a young Peregrine Falcon. Endangered peregrines first returned to nesting in cities in Baltimore in the 1980's after nearly going extinct in the United States - garnering international attention. Dans skillfully weaves the birth and first year activities of a baby peregrine in with the marvelous history and architecture to be seen in downtown Baltimore. The combination of natural history and scenic Baltimore is very appealing. Kim Harrell's illustrations provide a keen perspective on the falcon's view of a beautiful city.
Wonderful illustrations! Mar 4, 2003
This delightful book is a great story and a vivid tour of the city of Baltimore. The color illustrations are breathtaking and really give you a sense of flying along with the falcons as they visit various points of interest in the city. The birds are accurately depicted and the detailed panoramas make you want to look again and again. Highly recommended!
